Clark’s Bears is the perfect family destination, boasting wholesome entertainment for all ages.
The most thrilling and unusual aspect of Clark’s Bears is the Bear Shows. Murray and Maureen Clark, the current bear trainers, follow in their father’s and uncles’ footsteps, and train black bears to perform all sorts of interesting tricks; such as playing basketball, riding a scooter, throwing a ball and many more. The trainers interact with the bears as anyone does with household pets. They reward the bears with ice cream after each trick (good taste, bears!). During the first part of the show, we watched a full-size bear perform while during the second half of the show, the two adorable lively bear cubs, Darla and Hildie performed.
Another exciting show we watched in the two-story covered round arena (same as where the bear show takes place) is the circus. The Yandong Chinese Acrobats do the most incredible balancing, foot juggling and other mind-boggling acts. You have to see their acts to believe what they are capable of. Even while watching it, I had a hard time processing that they were able to do such unusual acts of dexterity and balancing.
The 25-minute train ride through a covered bridge over the Pemigewasset River is another all-time favorite. The Wolf Man and his shenanigans add an exciting twist to the already enjoyable train ride.
The two water activities can be enjoyed without having to change into swimming gear. The Anaconda Escape a large twisting water slide with 300 feet of twists and turns that is ridden on a rubber raft and ends with a splash as well as the Blaster Boats at the Old Mill Pond. The Blaster Boats are rubber bumper boats with squirters that can be used for a fun water fight with the others on the pond.
The three 30-foot climbing walls with a replica of the Old Man on the Mountain is a fun challenge. A 3-minute Segway rides in the Segway Park is included with general admission. There is also an option of a 45-minute Segway tour for an additional $25 if you would like to be able to enjoy the Segways for a longer amount of time.
Main Street at Clark’s Trading Post is a charming area built as an old-time street with shops and museums with a playground between Main Street and the Blaster Boats.
Clark’s Bears is an attraction that finds visitors returning year after year. There is so much to do, so much fun to be had, and the all-inclusive daily admission is well priced.
